Go Fast! jet pack pilot speeds Into record books at 68mph


(May 11, 2009) Denver, Colorado – The awe-inspiring flights of renowned Go Fast! Jet Pack Pilot, Eric Scott, have made their way into the Guinness Book of World Records.

The maverick daredevil secured a world speed record this past weekend at Scotland’s official motor show, MotorFair, by reaching a speed of 68mph in the hydrogen-peroxide powered Go Fast! Jet Pack. The conditions improved over the weekend and Scott was able to fight the 8mph headwind.

“I knew this was going to be a special weekend for breaking records,” said Scott, Go Fast! Jet Pack Pilot. “Knockhill is a great location and when the weather improved, it was all about going fast!”

Most recently, the Go Fast! Jet Pack made history in November of 2008 when a new world record for the farthest Jet Pack flight was successfully made 1,500 feet across the Royal Gorge in Canon City, Colorado, at an amazing 1,053 feet above the canyon floor. The amazing and jaw-dropping flight was seen the entire world over.
